Us

"The foundation year students of 2019/2020 heavily relied on each other for peer support and teaching. Though we all started the year with different levels of education and experience, we completed the year together, as a group of individuals who were taught a “new way of designing. Our tutors worked one-on-one with us and honed in on our individual styles, teaching us how to exaggerate and improve in these specific areas, whilst developing a necessary platform of architectural knowledge. Rapport blossomed between students and technicians who offered a wealth of knowledge about machinery and construction toward anyone walking around the workshop with a confused look on their face. These relationships were vital to us as foundation students.’"

Exploring the space on site for the Cast project.

"When you get to the classroom, they’re big. Really big. Dotted around the large, open and clean studio space there’re pockets of smaller communities. These communities quickly become friends through problem solving, tool sharing, paper giving and helping hands. These pockets soon disperse, leaving only community."
